BURGLAR ALARMS

All systems must use a control panel and at least one keypad to have a functioning system. Although we have access to a lot of different manufacturers, our installation and service teams seem to favor Ademco equipment.

Most systems will include the following:

1. CONTROL/COMMUNICATION PANEL
This is the brains of the system and all devices report to this box. The Control Panel used will be determined by your needs. Such as: how many zones, users and keypads.

2. KEYPADS
These are placed at entry points and will allow users to enter or exit doors that are near them. Typically in a residential setting a keypad is installed in the Master Bedroom. This offers convenience and if needed a panic button (each keypad doubles as a panic button).

3. DOOR AND/OR WINDOW CONTACTS

Are installed to monitor if a door or window is opened. Typically these are surface mounted.

4. MOTION SENSOR

These are used to detect an intruder once they have entered a protected area. The most common motion sensor used today is the passive infrared. It works by comparing background room temperature and any object moving in the area. When a warm object moves across its beam of detection an alarm will occur.

5. GLASS BREAK DETECTION

This can be accomplished in three different ways:
a. Glass break detectors mounted directly
on the panes of glass will detect the stress of breaking glass.
b. Audio discriminators will detect the sound of breaking
glass. These must be mounted usually within 20-30 feet of the glass.
c. Shock Sensors, these are mounted on the window
frame and detect the impact (shock) of breaking a window.
